In glorious Technicolor

Above is the original trailer for David Lean's version of Blithe Spirit. The film doesn't seem to have come out on DVD yet (oh when, O Lord, will we see a full-scale Lean boxed set??), but you may find a video of it at Blockbuster. I find the light, nasal cadences in these older British films quite intriguing - does anyone (other than perhaps the Queen) still talk this way?

(And here's to glorious Technicolor, invented - where else - at my alma mater, MIT!)
